Shotcrete is a high velocity application of concrete onto a vertical or overhead surface. The impact of the concrete against the target surface creates an excellent bond and is much easier to apply to complex forms and shapes compared to traditional concrete placement.
In many situations, shotcrete outperforms traditional concrete placement as it has both higher tensile strength and better thermal efficiency. Shotcrete can also be applied to almost any surface. And because it requires less formwork than conventional concrete, applications of shotcrete can be completed much quicker than traditional methods.
Over the last 30 years, Western Grater has built its reputation as the premier shotcrete contractor in Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Our ACI Certified nozzlemen have the experience required to provide innovative designs and efficient installations of any type of shotcrete system across a wide variety of applications.
We can install and finish structural shotcrete faster than traditional forms of concrete placement, saving clients both time and money. And our team of nozzlemen are trained in a variety of shotcrete shoring systems, including: soldier pile shoring, anchor tendon shotcrete shoring, internal brace shoring, and tie-back anchor shoring.
